    • 90+5' FULL TIME. Mata and Oscar with a goal and an assist apiece, Lampard and Terry with the other two, as Chelsea reach the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 4-0 win over Brentford. A fine second-half performance.
    • 90+5' Ivanovic embarks on a fantastic run and finds Cahill with a square pass in the box, but Douglas basically sits on the ball to prevent the defender getting a shot away.
    • 90+4' Douglas hooks an overhead kick back across goal but Ivanovic clears for Chelsea.
    • 90+3' Some pressure from Brentford though and Luiz is forced to clear behind for a corner...
    • 90+2' No late drama it seems as Chelsea cruise towards the fifth round, where they will face Middlesbrough.
    • 90' We will have four added minutes.
    • 89' The TV give the MOM to Oscar - I think Mata's a more deserving candidate but both have chipped in with a goal and an assist.
    • 87' Reeves has had to go straight down to the Brentford dressing room after having the wind knocked out of him. Down to 10 men for the moment.
    • 86' That was very nasty from Luiz - arguably a red card in fact.
    • 85' Luiz enters the book for a late knock into Reeves. It was a firm shoulder-barge and none too pleasant.
    • 84' Can Chelsea get one more here? You wouldn't put it past them.
    • 82' Lampard and Terry both on the scoresheet - that equals a good day for Chelsea supporters.
    • 81' GOAL! Chelsea 4-0 Brentford! John Terry adds a fourth as he meets a superb deep cross from Oscar \at the back post to head past Moore.
    • 81' Now Lampard earns a round of applause of his own as he is replaced by Ryan Bertrand.
    • 79' This game has suffered a drop in energy now it is over as a contest. Entirely understandable.
    • 78' Forshaw, Brentford's best player today, comes off for Sam Saunders.
    • 76' A well deserved rest for Mata as he is replaced by Yossi Benayoun.
    • 75' Mata has now scored and claimed an assist. Another brilliant performance from a quite exceptional player who makes a difference week after week.
    • 73' Diagouraga replaced by Jake Reeves.
    • 72' That puts Lampard within three goals of Bobby Tambling's club record, which he will surely break before his contract expires in the summer.
    • 71' GOAL! Chelsea 3-0 Brentford. Lampard makes it 199 in a Chelsea shirt. Mata gets free on the left and chips in a lovely pass for Lampard, who meets it on the volley in from of goal and slots home with his right instep.
    • 71' Donaldson rises to meet a corner and challenges Ivanovic, but the ball squirms up off his shoulder and away.
    • 70' Ivanovic is the first player booked as he knocks Forrester to the floor.
    • 69' Diagouraga was guilty in the build-up as he gifted possession to Hazard with a sloppy pass. It was the Belgian who played in Ivanovic on the right.
    • 68' GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 Brentford! Oscar with a delicious backheel from an Ivanovic cross and Moore and his defenders fail to keep it out on the line.
    • 66' Hazard should give Chelsea more control and craft in midfield. The Belgian will operate on the left.
    • 65' Here comes the change and Hazard replaces Moses.
    • 64' The spark seems to have gone out of Brentford somewhat since the goal. Unsurprisingly.
    • 62' Chelsea are readying Eden Hazard on the sidelines.
    • 61' Brentford suddenly find themselves two on two but Donaldson's pass through for Forrester is very heavy. The winger keeps the ball in but can't make anything of it.
    • 59' In comes a corner from Brentford and Tony Craig can't direct his header on target.
    • 58' Forrester will give Brentford a bit more spark in wide positions, with Trotta doing little aside from that offside goal.
    • 56' Donaldson hits the byline and thumps the ball into the side netting from the tightest of angles.
    • 55' Brentford make an immediate change as Harry Forrester comes on for Trotta.
    • 54' GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Brenford! Mata bags his 17th goal of a wonderful individual season. Cech pumps a long ball downfield and after Ba flicks it on with his head, Mata arrows a lovely shot into the far corner.
    • 53' Fantastic defending from Brentford as they block efforts from Lampard and then Luiz, the latter chance seeing Douglas take one in the face. Resolute stuff.
    • 52' Lovely work from Moses as he jinks left and right in the box before having a cross cleared behind.
    • 51' Chelsea are full of purpose at the start of this second half - Benitez must have had a strong word at the break.
    • 50' Moore now confidently takes possession of the ball as Moses races in at him. Brenford then clear when Mata hits the byline and plays the ball in.
    • 49' GREAT SAVE! Moore dives to keep out a headed effort from Ivanovic and Moses is unable to convert the rebound as it sneaks past his outstretched leg.
    • 48' Mata with a teasing cross from a shot corner and Moore punches away.
    • 47' Cole slips in Lampard with a neat pass in the box but Logan comes across quickly to stick in a leg and halt the Chelsea midfielder.
    • 46' KICK OFF!

    • 45+1' HALF TIME. A frustrating half for Chelsea, who have spurned a succession of chances. Indeed, the only man to have the ball in the net was Trotta, though play had already stopped.
    • 45' Adeyemi arrives in the box to meet a cross from the left but Chelsea manage to scramble the ball behind for a corner. The set-piece contains little threat.
    • 44' BIG CHANCE FOR CHELSEA! Oscar spreads the ball wide to Mata and the cross comes in, but Lampard prods the ball wide at the back post with a first-time volley. Not his day so far.
    • 43' Stat from Opta: "Only once in the last 14 years have Chelsea failed to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup."
    • 41' Now Forshaw dispossesses his man in the final third. He has had a tremendous game so far.
    • 40' Forshaw takes the set-piece but curls it into the wall. He can't do anything with the follow-up either.
    • 39' BRENTFORD HAVE THE BALL IN THE NET! But when Trotta taps home Chelsea have already stopped playing for a foul by Luiz on Forshaw 20 yards out.
    • 38' Lampard curls the free-kick in from the left of the box but Donaldson heads the ball up into the air and Moore then tidies up.
    • 37' Cole and Logan collide on the edge of the box and the Chelsea man buys a free-kick with his reaction. A good opening...
    • 36' Chelsea still on top but Brentford's massed ranks are doing a good job in defence.
    • 35' The cameras pick out Avram Grant - he's not coming back to the club is he?
    • 34' Decent chance for Brentford as the impressive Forshaw pings one just wide of the post from 25 yards. The midfielder looks dangerous from range.
    • 33' Chelsea spread the ball wide ot Luiz on the right and he tries to pick out Ba with a cross. The striker fails to connect cleanly on the slide and then when sticking his leg out behind him.
    • 32' Ivanovic swings and misses at the ball to allow Douglas to get possession but Chelsea regather themselves and see the ball out for a throw.
    • 30' No, scrap that, he doesn't want it now.
    • 29' The sun is causing problems for Brentford keeper Moore and he has asked for a cap.
    • 28' Stat from Opta "Marcello Trotta, on loan from Fulham, has scored three in four for Brentford (all comps)."
    • 27' Ba and Mata linked up nicely in the build-up to that chance and Mata's pass was perfect - only the slip from Oscar prevented them from taking the lead.
    • 26' CHELSEA HIT THE POST! Mata plays in Oscar inside the box and he slips as he swings his right boot at the ball, sending it spinning against the frame of the goal.
    • 24' Chelsea dominating possession but their final product has been lacking so far.
    • 23' Mata now puts in a sumptuous cross from the right but Ba can't get a touch on the stretch. The ball gets all the way to Cole on the left but his attempt to turn it back across the box on the half-volley is poor.
    • 22' Lampard with another sight of goal and again his execution is faulty as he shanks a shot well wide from 20 yards out. He's usually so good from those positions.
    • 21' Luiz embarks on a dangerous run and whips in a fantastic low cross. However, there isn't a Chelsea shirt to attack it as Brentford clear from their own six-yard box.
    • 20' Here come Brentford and Forshaw has a low shot that deflects off Marcello Trotta. It looked to be sneaking wide in any case.
    • 19' From the corner, Luiz pumps a volley high, high into the stands.
    • 18' CHANCE FOR CHELSEA! A pass is pulled back by Moses for Lampard as he lurks some 12 yards out but the midfielder scuffs his shot when he has a good chance. Oscar picks it up but his effort deflects over the bar.
    • 17' Stat from Opta: "Frank Lampard has been involved in 23 goals (scored 14 or assisted nine) in his last 24 appearances in the FA Cup."
    • 16' Ba with a nice flick to find Mata but the first time return pass is poor as the Spaniard cushions the ball to a Brentford shirt.
    • 15' Douglas had put his foot up high to nick the ball away from Mata's head - which wasn't great - but then Cahill absolutely clattered him with a nasty one.
    • 14' Awful, awful challenge from Gary Cahill on Jonathan Douglas in midfield as he hits the Brentford man late and high up the shins with a straight leg. Remarkably not even a booking.
    • 13' Ba chests down on the edge of the box and tries to spin to get a shot away. Moore is alert though and comes off his line to deal with the situation.
    • 12' Decent chance for Brentford as Clayton Donaldson peels off Ivanovic at the back post to meet a cross from the right and makes a mess of his header and he prods the ball tamely off target.
    • 11' If Ivanovic had stuck his header in the top corner then there was no way Moore was going to get close to it.
    • 10' Moses wins Chelsea a free-kick right near the corner flag after being wrestled off the ball. The set-piece comes in and Ivanovic gets free at the back post to head back across goal and just over the head of Ba at the front post.
    • 9' Cole tries to scoop a pass down the line for Oscar but Brentford cut it out dilligently.
    • 8' Brentford's first chance arrives as the lively Forshaw gets away from Oscar in midfield and lashes a right-footed shot about a yard wide of the post.
    • 7' It's been a bright-ish start at Stamford Bridge but Chelsea are yet to carve out a real opportunity. Still early in the game though.
    • 6' Tom Adeyemi finds a bit of space on the left but strays offside when the ball is played down the line for him. He should have been a bit wiser there.
    • 5' Ba, wearing a protective mask after breaking his nose against Newcastle, has a shot blocked after cutting in from the left flank.
    • 4' The Chelsea fans behind the goal thought Moore had carried the ball over the line but replays show that wasn't the case.
    • 3' Terry plays a rather tight pass to Ashley Cole on the left but he quickly moves the ball right to Branislav Ivanovic. Chelsea play the ball around and Oscar has a shot that loops into the air, forcing Simon Moore to clasp it on his line.
    • 2' Adam Forshaw tries to raise the pulse of the noisy away contingent with a run infield but he is halted by David Luiz.
    • 1' KICK OFF! Chelsea attacking right to left.
    • 11:55 We saw one London titan fall to lower league opposition yesterday with Arsenal's awful surrender to Blackburn, but surely there won't be a repeat here. It would be a shock of incredible magnitude if Brentford were to even get close. Do they have a chance? Let me know on Twitter. Follow Tom Adams (@tomEurosport) on Twitter
    • 11:50 Rosler said this week: "The surprise factor has gone. We had the chance to beat them because they underestimated us the first time around, but they won't do that again. They will take us more seriously this time around." Hard to disagree with that.

    • 11:40 Brentford find themselves seventh in the League One table with a win over Stevenage last weekend ending a run of five games without a win. Manager Uwe Rosler has very little hope of a result today - but if Brentford do spring a surprise then it could spell the end for his opposite number. That would mean Chelsea go without a trophy for the season for only the third time under Roman Abramovich.
    • 11:35 Time for some stats from Opta: "Only once in the last 14 years have Chelsea failed to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup. Chelsea have lost only two of their last 18 replays in the FA Cup; winning 13. Of the three that went to penalties, Chelsea were eliminated twice on spot-kicks. In just nine FA Cup games for Chelsea, Juan Mata has played a part in 10 goals (scored four and assisted six)."
    • 11:30 Brentford make three changes from the side that defeated Stevenage 2-0 with Shaleum Logan, Toumani Diagouraga and Marcello Trotta into the team for Lee Hodson, Harry Forrester and Paul Hayes. Trotta, on loan from Fulham, is the lone striker and danger man.
    • 11:30 Back-to-back wins over Wigan and Sparta Prague have taken the sting out of a run of four games without a win for Chelsea - one of which was the 2-2 draw at Griffin Park that saw Chelsea twice slip behind before goals from Oscar and Fernando Torres spared them acute embarrassment. Instead it was only mild.
    • 11:25 Captain John Terry starts for Chelsea despite reports on Sunday morning that he is at "war" with Rafa Benitez following a dressing room dispute over his form. Demba Ba also comes in for Fernando Torres in attack, with Victor Moses also returning to the team following African Cup of Nations glory with Nigeria.
